---- — Ballot watch

Way to go Lawrence, having the city police guarding the ballots in such a close race. The question now is who is watching the police, and who does Willie have in his pocket from the department?

Found ballots?

Does anyone want to bet that an envelope of just found, previously uncounted votes will mysteriously appear and will turn out to be Willie's absentee ballots from Tenares giving him the victory over Rivera? Trust me, Willie isn't talking publicly because he's privately working out how he's going to steal this election back.

Best wishes

So glad to hear Mr. Rivera won! Now, hopefully, Lawrence will become a better city. Congratulations, Mr. Rivera and best wishes for your future and the city's future.


So now there is 175-page document outlining the issues with Obamacare launch and they are worse than initially reported. Hmmm, 175 pages on a failure of the Affordable Care Act while Romneycare was only 75 total pages? This is what you get when you let the Democrats and the federal government run things.

Obama defenders

To the commenter "Bush's war": My comments on "ancient history" was not directed at or to the great Americans we lost in Iraq. We lost Americans in all our wars, which is terrible. But as usual, and as expected from you liberal thinkers, you always miss the point. The point I was trying to make is that when something negative is directed at Mr. Obama, what do you do? Instead of defending him and pointing out where the negative about him is wrong, or trying to show some positives -- which you can't, because there aren't any -- you do the only thing you can, revert back to Bush's errors. This, my friend, is the history I'm talking about. It's irrelevant at this time and has no bearing on the negatives now that are on Obama's plate. Therefore, Bush does not belong in the discussion. I swear when I talk to a liberal, it's like I'm talking apples and they're talking oranges -- two entirely different subjects. Bottom line is you don't use something negative Bush has done to correct or justify something negative Obama has done. Get it? Probably not.

Not mad

To the commenter "Don't be mad": Please get your facts straight. Yes, Osama bin Laden was killed on Obama's watch and he took the credit. But I have news for you: Who do you think put together the SEAL team that got him? News flash: It was Bush. What does that tell you? You also state Obama ended the war in Iraq. If that's true, then why are we still fighting over there? Maybe not in Iraq but it's still the Middle East. It's just geography, but it's the same war. You also stated because of Obama the economy is growing. Well, you've got to be kidding me right? Don't be mad, liberal Democrat.
